Finney, Ross L.
This document describes the program and activities of Modules and Monographs in Undergraduate Mathematics and Its Applications Project (UMAP) from July, 1976 through December, 1980. UMAP's twofold purpose has been to: 1) develop and disseminate self-contained modular materials in mathematics and its applications suitable for the undergraduate classroom, to help meet the increasing demand for professional education in mathematics; and 2) establish a self-sustaining consortium that will continue to produce materials after the initial period of funding by the National Science Foundation, and represent a broadly-based group of users and producers of such materials. The document notes all the major aspects of the project, and covers: Instructional Materials, Public Information Materials, Publication/Distribution, Resources to the Project, Consortium Development, Formative Evaluation, and Project Staff. Addenda provide: Chronology of Events; Sample Letters to Materials Developers; Modules-The UMAP Journal Editorial Board; List of Publications; Members-National Steering Committee; Members-Consortium Council; Information Materials-Subject Matter Panels; and Members-UMAP Central Staff.
